Long kidskin gloves

long kidskin gloves
she wore in the ╩╝60s
on my bare arm
is this just a freckle
or another age spot?

Moonbathing, issue 15, fall 2016

She seemed to me to be quite the fashion plate back in the day.


  1. I like the way the gloves elicit both a memory and the narrator's awareness of aging. An effective jux.

  2. Back then, I wore gloves because it was the fashion; now I wear them because my hands are always cold.


  3. Love the oh-so-human humor in this - pretty much the direction my mind goes in whenever I attempt a bit of 'glam' ... and pinning that observation against a long-ago memory is lovely.

  4. Thanks, everyone!
